Assassination conspiracy recordings to be examined for the third time

Many details thus far not revealed regarding the assassination conspiracy against the President and former Defence Secretary would be revealed during the next few days, said Law and Order Minister Ranjith Maddumabandara.

According to a security forces source, the said tapes are being examined by the Government Analyst for the third time and based on the investigations conducted so far, although the voice on the tape is very similar to that of DIG Nalaka Silva, but according to further investigations the voice on the tape has not yet been confirmed as that of the DIG.

However, Minister Ranjith Maddumabandara said that as he had not listened to the tape as yet, he was unable to comment about it. He noted that the Government Analyst’s report would be received within the next few days.
